Greetings to all my beloved fashion and travel lovers! As you get used to every week on the Mr.M blog posts are posted on Saturday or Sunday, right for the weekend. Ideal time, just as long as all of you get email with a notice that the new post is on the blog. You have more time to enjoy and dedicate yourself for the weekend. I noticed that you like to read the posts in which I do some monologues with myself without any instructions, so I will try and this time to be so. At the very beginning, I want to wish you the happy start of new month – May, and I hope that it will change some things for us, when you believe maybe something will change in your life and I’m a believer! 🙂
Last week, we started a Russian adventure on the blog, the reason for my visit was quite clear – Fashion Week in Moscow. I have not written outfit blog posts for a long time, so it’s hard for me to return on track, so I hope you will understand me. So far, I have been receiving an invitation for this event couple of times, but as you know in my life everything is changing so fast and I can’t make all things happen at one moment. This year situation was much better and finally I went in Moscow to see that fabulous luxury fashion world in Moscow.
I am a great adventurer, so this time I was assigned one task for myself. First, at 9:30 am to get out of the airport just to catch my famous limousine – shuttle bus, which takes me to the centre, so I have time to grab some quick bite for my breakfast and to pack up all my things and return for 2 hours to the airport, again! Yes, that’s how it was! I had less than two hours to pack up and go to an important event such as Fashion Week.
In just 2 hours I successfully managed to pack almost 26kg of everything… I tried in my head to explain to myself that I packed just essentials which I need for 6 days in Moscow… I completely forgot about the clothes which was waiting for me there. Thanks God that Red Wings assistants on check-in desk had enough understanding for my incredible capabilities of packing. Every time when I travel to some fashion event I just take everything with me, almost whole closet… 😀 Eventually it turns out that I have done everything wrong! This time I did not exactly make such a mistake because there was so cold in Moscow. Thank God, I took my favourite sweaters to warm me, although my mother tried to convince me that is not a good time to wear winter sweaters in the middle of spring in Moscow.
Somehow, I managed to pack up everything but I forgot the phone charger cables because my head was in the clouds and my mother told me that a lot of cables stayed at home while I was sitting in a lounge in front of gate with other passengers waiting for my flight. In that miserable moment I just tried to calm down and comfort myself that it would be perfect to find somewhere in Moscow to buy replacement chargers of some unknown brands just to survive this journey.
For the first time in my blogging life I thought to ask at the reception of the hotel if they maybe have chargers, I thought maybe they surely happen that the guests need a charger for the phone or computer and that they have forgotten to bring just like me. “I was wondering if I could have the charges for” ask so quietly, but my photographer did it a little louder again after I was ashamed to continue my question…
A nice young woman from the reception of St. Regis Nikolskaya hotel asked me to write on the paper all the charges I need and it will be delivered to my room as soon as possible, they will try to help me! In that moment I just wanted to hug that girls because it was the moment of sacred salvation of one blogging life of St. Marko and this poor soul do not need to buy charges! Hallelujah!
After only half an hour, little Marko got all the chargers and he could continue with his blogging activities. It was the first evening in Moscow, first I had to unpack my luggage and also to unpack the PR packages. Mostly, when I go to such a trip, the first thing I do is unpack my suitcases and packages that I got from the brands, because it is easier for me to iron them after.
I managed somehow to take a little “nap” for 2,3 hours and of course the next scene I remember is the sound of alarm… It’s my fault that I want to do 100 things at the same time, so sometimes I would have a day longer than 24 hours it wouldn’t be enough for me to finish everything I was planning.
I had to hurry up with the preparation because that day was also the first day of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia and in the afternoon there was a meeting for the media, bloggers and some brunch. As always, the photographer left me and went to eat, I even didn’t try to think about food because I was so close to fall asleep, but I managed to maintain it.
One of the many reasons for my exhaustion was shooting of this post and the fact that I wanted to do before going to the events because in the morning all of us look pretty and fresh (except me!) So I decided to do some photos for an outfit post. I forgot to mention that I also wrote some PR texts, so it was a loooong night for me.
My photographer has called this image “The Telenovela Moment”, honestly this photo is very dear to me. For the first time in my life, I clearly see my eyes on the picture. These moments are rare, but as you can see they exist! 🙂 Staying in St. Regis Nikolskaya hotel will stay in my memory because of the pleasant ambience and classical music I love to listen to and then my inspiration at the peak. Ideal time for writing new posts!
How to describe this outfit? I’ll try with just three words, and you correct me if I’m wrong: Perfect Brown Harmony. Thanks to my friends from the fashion house Loro Piana, I had the opportunity to feel the softness of their cashmere, which is the most famous in the world. First comment of my mom when she saw these pictures was “My dear, crazy child you will be frozen out at 6 degrees, maybe you can tape new movie Frozen 2: Moscow Edition!”. My mother should try to think about her comedy stand up career. I must admit that I did not feel cold because I had organized transportation and on another hand I was incredibly excited about Moscow because I finally came back to this beautiful city a few years later.
My dear travellers once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from Red Wings for this incredible adventure and the friendly staff from St. Regis Nikolskaya hotel that made our stay pleasant and we felt like we were at home.
